My husband is a businessman in Bristol and we have three grown children and five grandchildren who love to come visit the farm and rent pontoon boats on South Holston Lake.
The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2007
Willow Branch Farm is minutes away from land that my husband's family once farmed. Furniture made from that farm is now in our farmhouse.
We enjoy the beauty and serenity of the land as well as the easy access to the lake, the race track, local roots music, and the historic downtowns of Abingdon and Bristol.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful property with us.
We had an amazing time and your hospitality was over the top.
Two couples visiting Bristol for the NASCAR race Aug. 2016. This farmhouse is beautiful, and Mary Lynn and HD go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable! The property is beautiful, and I even got to see lightening bugs for the first time! The home has everything you need. We arrived to find a fruit and cheese platter and then the first morning fresh bagels that Mary Lynn delivered. The beds were comfortable and there is plenty of space to accommodate a large group. We had a wonderful stay and when we return to Bristol we will stay here again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful farmhouse. Four adults were in town for the NASCAR weekend and the house easily accommodated three unrelated individuals with plenty of privacy and just the right amount of togetherness. The house is comfortable and stocked with everything you could possibly need. Mary Lynn and HD were gracious hosts - correctly balancing friendliness and attention with leaving us to go about our business. The grounds are a refreshing change from city/suburban/corporate life - cows, horses, birds, open spaces and beautiful views. Convenient access to the track, Bristol's cute downtown and plenty of great BBQ places. We loved it! My husband and I plan to come back with family and explore hiking areas around the nearby lake.
We had such a great time! Mary was the perfect hostess!!!The grounds are outstanding! We love to hike and there was so much to see! There is a beautiful 2 mile hike to a bluff overlooking the valley! The house was beautiful and clean! The bedrooms were decorated with love and care! We had 7 of us for NASCAR. It fit us perfect. It was great being able to come to a nice quiet, beautiful place after being at NASCAR all day. There is a lake near by that we never even got to. Mary had the most beautiful cheese platter waiting for us. She also had milk and eggs in the refrigerator. The best basket of bagels,bars,cookies,bread,tea's etc. We were suppose only have 6 of us, the 7th person had another place to stay but had ridden out with us. Once he saw the house and the grounds he wouldn't leave!!!Thank you again Mary fro your great hospitality and putting up with us!!!Don't forget to look us up when you come to Cali!
We absolutely loved this rural retreat. Beautiful antique furnishings complement the vintage charm of the house, and a large wrap-around porch is perfect for morning coffee with the singing birds or evening cocktails with the fireflies. We enjoyed peace and quiet, plenty of space, all the comforts of home -- and were just a short drive to boat rental and fishing, downtown Bristol, the NASCAR track, and more. The four bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds, and I think you could easily sleep 8. The kitchen is much better equipped than other rentals we have visited, and Mary Lynn and HD are kind, hospitable, and very knowledgeable about the area. We would absolutely stay here again! Anyone who is traveling to this area and looking for some relaxation and renewal should really look no further. This farmhouse is a truly special place.
This 4 bedroom 1880 house was fantastic! It has everything, great beds, views, farm type setting. 5 min to lake, 10 min to town. The owners, Mary Lynn and HD invited us up for a sunset view from their house 1000 yds away. Mary Lynn provided fresh bagels, popcorn, bananas etc. the relaxed deck to just chill is a 10. We will be back the next time we visit from Texas
